Submitted by Faerisa on Thu, 2006-07-20 22:57
This list is a forum for (but not restricted to) SCA members dedicated to the research and recreation of subtleties (also refferred to as sotelties, soltelties, etc.), entremets and illusion foods within SCA timeframe. We study documented recipes and examples of this food art from the Roman, Medieval and Renaissance sources as well as sharing our attempts at recreating our own versions. This is an exiting element of period cooking that is all too often overlooked.
